Big Valley – Newberry

On Feb. 3, 1966 The Cass City Chronicle printed the AAA Guide to Winter Sports Fun in Michigan listing Big Valley as having open slopes and 2 tows. On Thu., Dec. 10, 1970, the same paper published the 1971 AAA Winter Sports Fun List. They reported Big Valley at Newberry had open slopes but now had 3 tows. In 1998, a web page listing attractions in the Newberry area said there was downhill skiing at Big Valley. Many Internet yellow pages sites and ski area lists still mention Big Valley.

Big Valley Tube and Ski is still open. Last season they apparently opened on Dec 8, 2018 and closed on Mar 22, 2019, with a couple of season interruptions due to inclement weather. Thanks to Mary Harz and Randy M, you can find them on Facebook at:  //

The area is east of Newberry, apparently near the end of Co. Road 428 near Hamilton Lake.

If you have any information about lift-served skiing at Big Valley, please consider posting it or send it to us via the directions on the About MILSAP page.
